Solar Brother launches SunAéro: its self-contained, modular, easy-to-install solar heating system!
SunAéro’s goal is to lower your heating thermostat by 3 to 5°C, free of charge and without electricity!
Specializing in the design of environmentally-friendly solar solutions (ovens, barbecues, vegetable dryers, etc.), French start-up Solar Brother announces the launch of SunAéro: a solar heating system that heats and renews the air in rooms ranging from 20 to 60m². A Made in France innovation, designed and assembled in France at Carnoules, which allows you to lower the thermostat on your traditional heating system by 3 to 5 degrees. It’s the perfect way to make substantial savings and adopt an eco-responsible approach! Available now for sale on Ulule to meet the needs of consumers this winter.
SunAéro®, or how to bring more heat into your room for free!
Solar heating is a project initiated in June 2022 by Solar Brother’s R&D teams in response to the sharp rise in energy prices, and the need for the French to turn to alternative solutions to lower their bills. One year later, this ambition has become a reality with SunAéro: the 1st solar heating system capable of heating and renewing air in rooms from 20 to 60m2, such as bedrooms, living rooms, workshops, sheds and cellars. The benefit? The extra 3 to 5 degrees it generates in the home means you can reduce your current thermostat by the same amount, and thus make real savings that are not to be underestimated.
Simple, one-person installation!
SunAéro can be installed vertically or horizontally on the outside of a house facing the sun (ideally due south, or south-east, south-west), using modular panels that are mechanically fastened to the wall with quick-release fasteners. With its “Plug & Play” system, installation is very simple: once you’ve chosen the room you want to heat, simply drill 4 holes on the outside of the room’s facade to attach the panel.
A turnkey installation takes from 1 to 3 hours, depending on whether it’s wood or concrete. To help users, Solar Brother offers several options: video tutorial guides and tool rental for do-it-yourselfers, or a call-out to a Solar Brother-supported craftsman.
Nothing to do on a daily basis!
Once you’ve installed the panels (from 1 to 3 panels, depending on the volume of the room to be heated), the pilot block and the ventilation system, there’s nothing left to do. Solar heating starts up naturally:
1. Outside air enters the bottom of the panel via the filter cassette.
2. The air then comes into contact with the solar absorber in the aerothermal solar panel, which is designed to optimize heat transfer.
3. As the air rises through the panel, it is heated and blown into the house via a controlled ventilation system. As soon as the pilot block exceeds 25° C*, ventilation starts up. When night falls, it automatically switches off as the sun sets.
*The setpoint temperature is adjustable.
This patented technology, optimized for air duct insulation, enables glue- and silicone-free assembly. SunAéro runs completely autonomously on solar energy. The heat combined with the air flow heats and dehumidifies the rooms. With SunAéro, not only do you gain a few “free” degrees to heat your rooms, but you also renew the volume of air in the room every hour with a silent ventilation system.
The ideal complement to a heat pump or a wood, electric or gas-fired heater for heating one or more rooms in winter, SunAéro can also be very useful in summer: its modular panels can even be installed on a drying shed and used as a fruit and vegetable dehydrator, tumble dryer or to speed up the drying of wood.
Soon connected, to monitor energy savings in real time and control the fan remotely!
Last but not least, SunAéro is the only solar heating system that can be controlled remotely via a mobile app, soon to be available. This will provide real-time data (including watts saved) and allow users to set fan settings so that, for example, it switches on automatically when the panel temperature is 5°C higher than that of the room to be heated, or depending on the desired humidity level in the room.
SunAéro will be available at the end of the year at prices starting at 1,470 euros, and is now available for pre-order on Ulule. The first purchasers will be offered very attractive launch prices at cost price! To find out more, click here.
